ffh Obieet of Our Foreet Poller I
the Making of Proaperoua Home
' ' President Roosevelt in a recent ad
dress before the Society of American
Foresters, a professional body of which
be is an associate member, declared
the forest problem to be in many ways
the most vital Internal problem of the
United States. The object of our for
est policy, he said, is the making of
prosperous homes. This policy must
Hot' be Imposed upon the people. It
an be effective only when the people
believe that it Is wise and useful; that
It la indispensable. The president
called' attention to the close relation of
forestry to the mining industry In the
West, to the lumbering Industry, whose
Very existence depends upon the suc
cess of forestry; to the railroads and to
the grazing interests. Of the success
f forestry in this country he said, "I
believe that the foresters of the United
States will create a more effective sys
tem of forestry than we have yet
Among other things, President Roose
velt said: "And now, first and foremost,
you can never afford to forget for one
moment what Is the object of our for
est policy. That object Is not to pre
serve the forests - because they are
"beautiful, though that Is good In it
self, nor because they are refuges for
the '-wild creatures of the wilderness,
though that, too, is good In Itself, but
the primary object of our forest policy,
as of the land policy of the United
States, Is the making of prosperous
homes. It la part of the traditional
policy of home making of our country.
Every other consideration comes as
secondary. The whole effort of the
government In dealing with the forests
must be directed to this end, keeping in
View the fact that it is not only neces
sary to start the homes as prosperous,
but to keep them so. That Is why the
forests have got to be kept You can
start a prosperous home by destroying
the forests, but you cannot keep It
prosperous that way.
"And you are going to be able to
make that policy permanently the policy
of the country only In so far as you are
able to make the people at large and,
above all, the people concretely Inter
ested in the results in the different lo
calities appreciative of what It means.
Impress upon them the full recognition
of the value of its policy and make
them earnest and zealous adherents of
It Keep In mind the fact that In a
government such as ours It is out of the
question to Impose a policy like this
from without. The policy as a perma
nent policy can come only from the in
telligent conviction of the people them-
selves that It la wise and useful, nay,
" 'Forestry Is the preservation of for
ests by wise use,' to quote a phrase I
used In my first message to congress.
Keep before your minds that definition.
Forestry does not mean abbreviating
that use; it means making the, forest
. useful not only to the settler, the ranch
er, the miner, the man who lives In the
neighborhood, but Indirectly to the man
who may live hundreds of miles off
down the course of some great river
, which has had its rise among the for
est bearing mountains." :
The Centrifugal Separator.
The use of the centrifugal separator
as a purifier of milk Intended for re
tall, trade has already reached some
commercial Importance. The disad
vantages of the method, as pointed out
by 0. F. Hunzlker in a recent bulletin
of the New York Cornell experiment
station, are the time and cost Involved,
and especially the fact that skim milk
and erenm when once separated do not
mix well and when reunited the cream
docs not rise as abundantly as in fresh
milk. "As the consumer judges the
richness of milk largely by the amount
of cream that rises on it, he naturally
and unjustly regards ceutrlfuged milk
as nu article poor In fat and Is un

Expansion Spring In Wire Fencing.
I have used almost all kinds of do
Vices for bracing the corner post and
have found all a failure to a certain
extent until I commenced to use the
expansion spring, which takes nil the
; strain from the post In winter and
keeps your fence tight In summer, says
an Ohio Farmer correspondent. In
building a hundred rods of fence first
set the corner post good and solid; an
chor with stone three or four feet un
derground, which is fur bettor than the
1 brace, uslug the expansion spring in
connection with each wire every twon-ty-flve

set another post and anchor one way to
draw tho first fifty rod, its that Is as

much as can be drawn at once, one
wire at a time. When each wire Is
drawn tight enough to cause the
springs to expand a half inch between
each coil, It is tight enough. Fasten
the wire, remove the ratchet, pnd the
same with each wire. When you have
finished the first half, fasten the wires
to the middle post and go ahead with
the last the same as the first, placing
the springs twenty-five rods apart
using the ratchet for tightening the
wires; fasten the wires to your posts,
then place stays of some kind to keep
bogs from spreading them apart. This
Is one of the best methods for using
Straight wire that any farmer oau try.

An Early Norman Dinner, --,
The Saxon dinner arrangements were
orderly compared with those of the.
; early Normans, when the halls and
' passages were frequently the scene of
a free fight between the servants bring
ing in the food and the crowds of dang
ers on endeavoring to snatch It from
' them. This nuisance became at length
' so Intolerable that ushers of the hall
' and kitchen ere established by King
William Kufus to protect not only the
cooks bringing in" the dinner, but the
guests arriving to partake of it. Upon
the occasion of his great feast at West
minster 300 of these officers were on
duty, some to guard the visitors as
they ascended the steps and others to
defend the threatened dishes. '
Such was the uncivilized state of so
ciety at this period, but when later on
the marauders disappeared from the
great houses It became customary to
carry in the dishes in procession, some
times preceded by music and headed
by the steward with his wand of office.
It was the duty of an "asseeur" or
placer to arrange them nppn the table;
the ewers and napkins with which to
perform their ablutions were present
ed to the guests by the esquires and
pages, while it fell to the lot of the al
moner to say grace.
A Great Feaat.
There has never been prepared , at
any feast a bigger bowl of punch than
that which was brewed by the Right,
Hon. Edward . Russell when he was
captain general and commander ' In
chief of the forces ' In the Mediterra
nean seas. It was made in a fountain
In a garden In the middle of four
walks, all covered overhead with
lemon and orange trees. In every walk
there was a table the whole length of
It and on every table was a cold colla
tion. In the huge fountains were the
following ingredients: Four hogsheads
of brandy, eight hogsheads of water,
25,000 lemons, twenty gallons of lime
juice, 1,300 pounds of fine Llsben
sugar, five pounds of grated nutmegs,
300 toasted biscuits and a pipe of dry
Over the fountain was placed a great
canopy, while in the midst of this lake
of liquor there sailed a little sailor boy
who filled the cups and replenished the
glasses of all those who had a desire
to drink. More than 6,000 men put in
an nppearance at this feaBt. London
The Feet of Chameleons.
Chameleons, as no doubt readers are
aware, all belong to the old world, and
particularly to Africa. In their tongue,
their feet and their eyes they differ re
markably from other lizards. Their
feet though possessing five toes, are
divided into two grasping groups, look
ing like a hand In mittens, and only by
close examination you perceive the
presence of the two or the three oppos
ing respectively, but so close together
as to appear like one broad one.
On the padded soles or palms of
these grasping limbs you can feel and
see the small may one say palpi,
which enable them to grasp so firmly
that it Is difficult to detach a chameleon
from its foothold. These clinging feet

Faying a Call In China.
1 A Chinese bride called upon a foreign
lady, says a missionary. On entering
the room she deliberately turned her
back upon' her hostess and made an
elaborate obeisance. Of course the for
eign lady was amazed and annoyed,
but she found out the reason of the
strange proceeding afterward. The
bride's conduct had conformed to Chi
She had performed her obelsnnce, her
k'o-t'-ou, to the north because that Is
the direction of the royal abode. If the
foreign lady was so Ignorant as to
stand on the south side of the room,
that was not the bride's concern. She
knew, If her hostess did not in what
direction to bow her haad.
